It looks like they won't stop against Sony. However, I think Sony should take action in securing all their websites now.

Wow, someone really has a grudge against Sony (I'm willing to bet a lot of money That they own xboxs ;) )

However you would think that even the smaller branches of Sony would be smart enough to protect against SQL injection.

Another day, another attack on Sony. I reported yesterday on the SQL injection attack exposing user information on SonyMusic.gr and today attackers have found flaws in SonyMusic.co.jp.

The Hacker News sent us a tip this evening documenting a couple of vulnerable web pages on SonyMusic.co.jp that allowed hackers to access their contents through SQL injection.


The good news? The database information that was published does not contain names, passwords or other personally identifiable information. The attackers noted that there are two other databases on the site that are vulnerable and it remains unclear whether they contain sensitive information.

It isn't clear whether the hackers are able to inject data into the database, or simply access the tables and records it contains. If they are able to alter the records, this could be used to insert malicious code that could be used to compromise people browsing the site.

This might be bad for Sony BMG, but I bet it is not nearly as devastating for their customers as the events were that led up to a legal settlement 6 years ago:

This is small potatoes compared to that rootkit. I still have a few discs with it on, came included with that horrific player that would make anyone cry blood.
That really was the dark ages of DRM.
